Customer Question

Hello, my Bospin is walking without lifting his back legs. He is keeping them stiff. He is scaring us!

Hello my name is***** but you can call me Dr. H and I am a licensed veterinarian. I understand that your Boston/min pin is lifting his bag legs and keeping them in an extended position. I need you to do a quick test for me to see if he has a common condition seen in both these breeds.

Take his leg and bend it at the knee while also placing your fingers around his knee. Do you feel a popping in his knee area? Sort of like something in the knee is moving side to side, instead of up and down?

Ok. Is Bospin yelping out in pain at all? Does he seem to be in distress about his legs?

Ok I am on HST, so unsure what time zone you are in. How many hours/minutes is that where you are?

Also the pus discharge from the penis can be normal if he is intact. This is called smegma.
